Hi guys,
Getting my manifolds resurfaced at this moment and trying to get ahead of the game so I'm ready to put my de-smogged 84 FJ60 all back together. I wondering if I need to just buy a new carburetor insulator gasket at this point after doing all this other work (replacing carb with Trollhole) or just put gaskets that I already have on each side of insulator? Or maybe no gaskets are needed as it still has the bonded gaskets on it but the edges are a bit beat up. Please let me know what you think. Thanks a million!

• New insulator is guaranteed leak free
• Gaskets on top of old insulator probably won't leak
• Reusing old insulator without gaskets might leak but maybe not.

I dunno. Looks ok to me, but as stated, new on is still available. When you reassemble, use a thin film of Sil-Glyde or other synthetic grease on the insulator gaskets and carb/manifold metal surface so the bonded gaskets won't stick and tear when stuff is pulled apart (next time).
